After storming the United States with two KO wins over Deontay Wilder, WBC/Lineal/Ring Magazine World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury returns home to one in on Saturday, April 23 at London's Wembley Stadium  British fight against WBC interim champion Dillian Whyte.

“Tyson Fury, coming home to fight under the arch of Wembley Stadium, is fitting reward for the world No. 1 heavyweight, following his exploits he achieved across the Atlantic in his epic trilogy against Deontay Wilder  ' said Hall of Famer promoter Frank Warren.  “Having this mandatory defense of his WBC title against another Brit only adds to a great performance.  They are two of the biggest characters in all of British sport and both usually have a lot to say for themselves."

"It will be an incredible night and a major event for sport in this country that will capture the imagination of fans around the world."

Top Rank boss Bob Arum added: "Tyson Fury has conquered America and it's only fitting that he's defending his heavyweight belt at what is sure to be a packed Wembley Stadium.  Dillian Whyte has been asking for this fight for years and he is a deserving contender, but no heavyweight can match The Gypsy King.  This will be a momentous boxing night with tens of thousands of fans at London's Wembley Stadium.”

Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) has held the linear heavyweight title since November 28, 2015, the night he ended Wladimir Klitschko's nearly decade-long championship run.  After more than two years of inactivity, he returned to the ring in June 2018 and inspired millions of boxing fans with a comeback that saw him fight for the world title within six months of his comeback victory over Sefer Seferi in Manchester.  The only blemish on his record - a controversial December 2018 draw against Deontay Wilder - was avenged in February 2020 and October 2021 with back-to-back KO wins against the American star.  Dillian Whyte's showdown marks his first fight in London since February 2015.

Dillian Whyte (28-2-0, 19 KOs), who grew up in Brixton, London, England, earned the fight against Tyson Fury, with a seven-year run as a world-level heavyweight.  After his seventh-round TKO loss to Anthony Joshua in 2015 - while both were undefeated - Whyte went on an 11-fight win streak that included triumphs over Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas, Lucas Browne and Derek Chisora ​​(2x)  included.  However, his momentum and mandatory position were halted when Alexander Povetkin knocked him out with a single left uppercut in August 2020.  Whyte exacted revenge in March 2021, knocking out Povetkin in four rounds to regain his interim title and WBC No. 1 position.
